Flat Foot / Flat Feet Foot Surgeon NYC

flat-feet-surgeon-nycBecause of the progressive nature of flat feet early treatment is advised. If treated early enough, your symptoms may resolve without the need for flat foot / flat feet surgery and progression of your flat feet condition can be minimized. In contrast, if left untreated, you could have extremely flat feet, painful arthritis in the foot and ankle, and increasing limitations on walking, running, or other activities. If your condition has progressed and you are seeking a flat foot surgery consultation, please contact Dr. Stuart Mogul’s Upper East Side NYC foot surgery practice.

There are a number of surgical procedures available to correct and restore the alignment of the flatfoot, including minimally invasive procedures such as the hyprocure extra-articular subtalar joint implants and a multitude of other ‘traditional open’ tendon and bone re-alignment procedures.

The type of flat foot / flat feet surgery will be determined by age and progression of the deformity.

* The NYC foot surgery specialist treats both flat feet in children and adults.

Flat Feet Surgery for Children

When a child has flat feet, it means that all parts of the bottom of each foot touch the ground when your child is standing. Older children may have flat feet for a number of reasons. Problems with ligaments, muscles, joints, bones, and the nervous system are all possible causes.

Every child is different and a biomechanical assessment would the best way to determine the best treatment method and outcome for your child.

What are the symptoms of flat feet in children?

  • Flexible flat feet: Most children with flat feet have flexibility in their feet. When a child stands on a flexible flat foot, the arch falls and is flat. The arch comes back when your child raises the big toe. Children with flexible flat feet sometimes walk with their toes pointed inward to help keep their balance. This can cause the soles of the child’s shoes to wear out quickly. Flexible flat feet don’t cause foot pain.
  • Rigid flat feet: As a child gets older, flat feet may get more rigid or inflexible. If this happens, your child will probably have foot pain.

Flat Feet Surgery for Adults

Flat feet can cause many problems for adults including forefoot, arch and ankle pains, to leg issues including knee, hip and lower back pain.

In the early stages of the flat foot condition the foot can be treated with appropriate foot-ware and braces. However as the condition progresses various bones in the foot can be surgically cut and realigned to provide a better gait for the patient. Ultimately as the condition progresses various fusions need to be performed by the surgeon.

* Surgery is only considered after conservative management such as stretching, orthotics, exercise and shoe modification has been exhausted or deemed inappropriate.
